It's Kentucky Derby time here in Louisville (break out the riding crop AC) AND we launched the Romance Bandits! Quite a wild weekend indeed.
It is incredibly easy to equate writing with a horse race. You could say we are all high spirited fillies ( my favorite for the fillies race, the Kentucky Oaks came in third. Her name was High Heels. Hmmm. I know how hard it is to WALK in heels, so running would be hard LOL). Some horses favor muddy tracks while others like the fast ones; the same way the Banditas write in different sub genres. Oh, and we look good in silks. :-) We're all in the race to publication and have our eye on the finish line. Some of us have crossed already. Some are there for a photo finish and the rest keep galloping along.
Enough of the racing analogies. Since finaling in the Long Historical category in the 2006 GH, I have had the privilege to get to know this fantastic group of writers now known as The Romance Bandits. They are supportive, encouraging, and incredibly knowledgeable and I know anyone visiting this blog will be glad they visited.
